CalvART Gallery’s April Show: “Appalachian: The Art of Megan Richard and Suzanne Shelden” introduces new work that encompasses Appalachians from the Carolinas to New Hampshire.
Megan paints ethereal watercolor and water-media landscapes evoking a time and place remembered or dreamed. In this show, Megan captures impressions based on time spent in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina, Western Maryland, and New York State. Subject matter ranges from mountain vistas to more intimate woodland landscapes and depictions of the flora and fauna for the Appalachian region.
Suzanne says “be prepared to say ‘I have been there!’ to many of the paintings she will have in the show. She is revisiting her love of Virginia, debuting her “Straw Song” paintings in which each of the six paintings is titled with lines from a familiar and much loved song. She is also showing some of her favorite memories of hikes in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, many of which depict the Appalachian Trail.
Megan and Suzanne both look forward to the reception on April 18th
